2017 Women's Retreat: August 25-26 (See details below)

 
 

Seek Him Continually, Serve Him Faithfully, Share Him Boldly

Bringing all women together in Christ for encouragement, belonging, connection, service and spiritual growth.

Each of you has been blessed with one of God’s many wonderful gifts to be used in the service of others. So use your gift well. 
(1 Peter 4:10, CEV)

At Christ Church we believe God has equipped women to lead and teach. Women are a valuable part of the church, and their gifts and graces need to be cultivated as they become disciple-makers. Our Women's Ministry seeks to bring all women together in Christ for encouragement, belonging, connection, service and spiritual growth. 

A number of Community Life Groups are available to equip the women of Christ Church.



The 2017 annual Christ Church Women's Retreat is shaping up to be the best yet! The beautiful & relaxing country atmosphere of Country Place is perfect! This weekend getaway will give you the chance to be with friends where you can relax from your hectic schedule. Most of all, you will have time to draw close to God through Bible study, prayer, speaker sessions, quiet times of reflection & worship. Don't miss this incredible opportunity to get to know women in our church of all ages & stages of life. Retreat speaker is Dr. Cynthia Davis. Cost: $75

Limited scholarships are available. For information, contact Laura Greenwell, (901) 261-2133, before you complete the registration form.

 

United Methodist Women (UMW) and Circle Meetings

UMW Circles meet on a monthly basis at various times (day & evening) and locations (homes, Christ Church & East Ministry Center). UMW Circles are most active from September through May. The remaining 2017 UMW General Meeting schedule is September 19 and December 19. 

Our annual Fall Festival and Bake Sale is November 4. Proceeds benefit local missions. Save the date and come support our area missions. 
 


UMW/Women's Luncheon
Tuesday, Sept. 19 | 11:30 a.m. | Seabrook Hall 

Join us for a delicious lunch, music and a message from our special guest speaker, Reggie Davis from Streets Ministries. Prior to coming on staff with Streets, Reggie worked for Young Life for six years where he most recently served as an Area Director. In 2010, Reggie joined the Streets staff because it gave him the opportunity to achieve his mission: to honor God, expand His Kingdom and enhance this city. 

Special music by The Singing Ministers (Mark Matheny, Sonny Davis & Chris Carter)

Cost of lunch is $10; register  below or with your circle leader. You do not have to be a member of a UMW Circle to attend.

A love offering will be taken up for Streets Ministries. Learn more about their amazing ministry at streetsministries.org.

 

UMW is a community of women whose purpose is:

  • To know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ
  • To develop a creative, supportive fellowship
  • To expand the concept of missions through participating in local and global ministries of the church
